For the first time, MCV Deutschland, Van Hool and Elektrobus Europe are displaying their buses at BUS2BUS. For Zoltán Sipos, CEO of Elektrobus Europe, the quality of the business platform is impressive. "As representatives of the Ikarus brand, we believe that even such an established manufacturer should regularly attend the leading industry trade fairs. In addition to a showcase of the current product range, taking part also offers an opportunity to build new market relationships and gain new industry insights. The team at BUS2BUS has already successfully shown great expertise and skill by providing us with this platform.”
For Dirk Snauwaert, Communications & PR Manager at Van Hool, it is important to showcase the bus manufacturer’s innovations to both the German and international market. “We are presenting completely new city buses at BUS2BUS. These are battery-electric, fuel cell and trolley buses which are absolutely emissions-free. Our travel coaches include a new range with a strong focus on safety and comfort.“
